Intraneural bleeding as well as extraneural compression by hematoma formation should be considered as a cause of neuropathies occurring in patients with(More)
We studied the diagnostic significance of immunohistolochemical staining and immunoglobuline gene rearrangement of jumbo-biopsy specimen from 14 patients with stomach lesions which were difficult to distingwish between reactive lymphoreticular hyperplasia (RLH) and mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma (MALT lymphoma). We also investigated Helicobacter(More)
